My friends and I walked down to Prescott park to experience the water views, but once we were there, we got much more than that! We walked through the gardens, took pictures in the funny boards that you put your head up to, and got...More
Lovely park right on the waterfront! Just steps from downtown Portsmouth with what appears to be garden beds, however in November only the stems and mulching remain. Will definitely be returning to this enchanting spot come spring!
We went to see a musical show and to walk in the beautiful gardens this summer...delightful all. Watching the show under the stars; watching the boats going into Portsmouth harbor; clean and family friendly; much improved rest rooms.
Very excited to go to this park. Google maps took us to an entrance with a small parking lot and dumpsters. Not the greatest first impression. The park bathroom was open late. The park was not very well lit, but still ok for my almost...More
We happened on this colorful, tranquil park following a walk through downtown Portsmouth from our hotel. It was the perfect way to cap off the morning. Stretching along the Piscataqua River, the green park was speckled with bright flowers, benches, fountains, open spaces, displays and...More
Great park; small (tiny) version of Boston's Public Gardens or Central Park in NY; this hidden gem has benches & gardens near Market Square on the ocean!! It's good for taking Fido for a walk, as long as you pick up after him/her. Go for...More
My sister is planning on getting married in Prescott Park, Portsmouth,NH. If the weather is good this should be a great location. If it rains we will need a different location? Any ideas? She already is using the Sheriton for the reception.

I'm assuming your sister is either using a Jp or a pastor already known to her? Talk with the people at the Sheraton.....(Randy if possible) I am sure that they would accomodate an indoor ceremony right there at the reception site. Another option is renting a large tent for Prescott Park. Again, check with the city for any local permits needed for a tent.

Places to see in Portsmouth (6 Replies)
Hi, I am pretty new to New Hampshire. I am currently staying in Dover and planning for a day trip to Portsmouth this weekend. I have planned to go to the downtown area (Market Square) and Prescott Park. I have few questions since I am entirely new. 1. What is a good place for parking around the downtown area? 2. Which place gives me a great view of the Harbour and the see and I can take some good photographs :) 3. Any good sea-food restaurant you recommend in this area? 4. I am also...More

There is a public parking garage in the center of town, just off Congress Street. It's inexpensive and very central. Prescott Park is actually on the Piscataqua River, not the open ocean, if that's what you're after. You might want to drive a little down Route 1A (and also watch for Rte 1B which takes you through the pretty town of Newcastle) for really nice views on the water. In Portsmouth itself, I'd recommend Jumpin Jay's but there are so many really good seafood places, you'll be...More
any idea for a 4th Jul family getaway ? (3 Replies)
we would really like to get away to a lake or somewhere near the water if we can for the week beginning 1st July. I was thinking of Portsmouth coz of the children's museum and Prescott Park. I am pretty sure my kid will enjoy the Discovery Center as well. Any suggestions or ideas ? Also, places to stay would be great, thanks !

Portsmouth is a great pick. there's a lot to do in a small city. A couple or few days would do you well. Plays at night at prescott, shoping during the day. Also rye beaches are nice. Although kids might get more of a kick of Hampton Beach. although don't suggest it for nighttime. The hotels in downtown portsmouth are expensive. but the traffic circle is not far at all. and there are 5 or six motels to pick. checkout the music hall too...but durring the summer there is so much life in the...More
